salamhangat posted a topic in ComunitateVirgin Australia is extending the three-month Discover Gold trials provided under the airline’s recent status match offer, giving members an extra two months to qualify for full Velocity Gold membership. Existing Velocity Gold and Platinum cardholders will also have longer to enjoy promotional benefits added over the summer – including prolonged status after just one flight, bonus points after two, or upgrade benefits after three – plus more time to qualify for these if they hadn’t already. Here’s what you need to know. https://www.sparkblue.org/content/officialtm-watch-tom-jerry-2021-online-hd-free https://www.sparkblue.org/content/officialtm-watch-raya-and-last-dragon-2021-online-hd-free https://www.sparkblue.org/content/officialtm-watch-little-things-2021-online-hd-free https://www.sparkblue.org/content/officialtm-watch-promising-young-woman-2021-online-hd-free https://www.sparkblue.org/content/officialtm-watch-fear-rain-2021-online-hd-free https://www.sparkblue.org/content/officialtm-watch-demon-slayer-movie-mugen-train-2021-online-hd-free https://www.sparkblue.org/content/officialtm-watch-coming-2-america-2021-online-hd-free https://paiza.io/projects/mYd5ccOQZoqf6edL1blOHg?language=php https://onlinegdb.com/SJvO9dMX_ https://caribbeanfever.com/photo/albums/vsggewgecvxzd https://www.posts123.com/post/1359456/vdsegxccssfsfsfxc https://dcm.shivtr.com/forum_threads/3320914 http://corsica.forhikers.com/forum/p/41979 https://glida08.medium.com/velocity-extends-status-match-trial-boosts-platinum-and-gold-perks-ce023ce4d74f https://www.tripoto.com/trip/velocity-extends-status-match-trial-boosts-platinum-and-gold-perks-6044fc6a82512 https://www.mychemicalromance.com/news/velocity-extends-status-match-trial-boosts-platinum-and-gold-perks-3702276 http://paste.jp/cbed7ea5/ https://pastebin.com/Raknw906 https://paste.feed-the-beast.com/view/c1d0cd9a https://pastelink.net/2pqcr https://pasteio.com/xGefX5ifLmi1 https://slexy.org/view/s2Bd4tpTpj https://bpa.st/NIWQ https://dumpz.org/bbDzH5rMcd28 https://www.pastery.net/xvnbhd/ https://warosu.org/jp/page/S1#p33585541_1 Velocity Discover Gold status match trials stretched to five months In late 2020, Virgin Australia rolled out the red carpet for elite members of rival frequent flyer programs (including Qantas, among others), offering three months of Gold-grade perks at a level known as Discover Gold, with a fast-track to a full year of true Velocity Gold status. Those granted the ‘status match’ originally had three months to take one eligible Virgin Australia flight and to earn the 80 status credits required to complete the challenge. As of this week, the Discover Gold period has been pushed to five months for all Discover Gold members. “With the travel situation continuing to change, we realise that 3 months may not be enough time for you to reach your travel goals and enjoy your Discover Gold membership,” reads an update published by Virgin Australia. “So that you can enjoy Virgin Australia’s award-winning service, we’ve added an extra 2 months to your Discover Gold membership.” Even if you’d already met the Discover Gold challenge requirements, you’ll still get that Discover Gold extension: giving you an extra two months of Gold-grade perks before those 12 months of Velocity Gold kick off: that’s up to 17 months of lounge access, from the one status match. Velocity’s Discover Gold fast-track offer has not reopened to new applicants, however. Read: Virgin Australia's status match for Qantas, Emirates, Oneworld Status extensions for existing Velocity Platinum, Gold members Velocity had previously offered all Platinum and Gold members (excluding Discover Gold cardholders) extra time at their current tier, in return for booking one eligible paid flight between December 7 2020 and March 28 2021. That booking window has now been extended until May 30 2021, for travel until February 22 2022. For example, a Velocity Gold or Platinum member who currently holds status until mid-December 2021 would see that pushed until March 31 2022 after booking one flight: a 3.5-month extension. However, a member whose status is due to expire in April 2021 – even after the one-year extension offered by Velocity last year – would similarly have their tier extended until the end of March 2022 after booking just one flight, being a much bigger gain from the same deal. More time to earn 5,000 bonus Velocity Points for Velocity Platinum, Gold Exclusively for Velocity’s Platinum and Gold members, the airline had been offering 5,000 bonus Velocity Points after taking two eligible flights between December 7 2020 and March 28 2021. Just like the status extension offer, that period has also now been pushed until May 30 2021. There’s no need to register. When that second eligible (paid) flight is credited to your Velocity account, those 5,000 points come attached as a bonus, alongside another other bonuses also due (such as your Velocity Gold or Platinum ‘status bonus’):
Sonos is set to reveal its all-new Roam portable speaker next week, with an expected Australian release date in late April at around $250. The Sonos Roam looks to be far more portable than the bulky Sonos Move, which was essentially a very beefed-up Sonos One with a whopping great battery pack to boot. In comparison, the Roam is said to hew closer to the dimensions and weight of other portable speakers such as the Ultimate Ears Boom – but with the ability to become part of your Sonos multi-room WiFi system at home, while relaxing on the deck or by the pool, doing some gardening or even while giving your car that overdue wash and polish. https://www.sparkblue.org/content/hd-watch-walking-dead-season-10-episode-18-online-free-full-episodes https://www.sparkblue.org/content/vodlockertmr-watch-walking-dead-season-10-episode-18-online-full-hd-free https://www.sparkblue.org/content/123movies-series-official-walking-dead-season-10-episode-18-online-full-episode https://www.sparkblue.org/content/hd-watch-attack-titan-season-4-episode-13-online-free-full-episodes-0 https://www.sparkblue.org/content/vodlockertmr-watch-attack-titan-season-4-episode-13-online-full-hd-free https://www.sparkblue.org/content/123movies-series-official-attack-titan-season-4-episode-13-online-full-episode-0 https://www.sparkblue.org/content/hd-watch-good-girls-season-4-episode-1-online-free-full-episodes https://www.sparkblue.org/content/123movies-series-official-good-girls-season-4-episode-1-online-full-episode https://www.sparkblue.org/content/vodlockertmr-watch-good-girls-season-4-episode-1-online-full-hd-free https://dcm.shivtr.com/forum_threads/3320856 http://www.shadowville.com/board/general-discussions/sonos-readies-new-roam-portable-speaker#p469125 http://corsica.forhikers.com/forum/p/41962 https://glida08.medium.com/sonos-readies-new-roam-portable-speaker-74f1ab255353 https://myanimelist.net/blog.php?eid=845689 https://www.tripoto.com/trip/sonos-readies-new-roam-portable-speaker-6044e323b7e73 https://www.mychemicalromance.com/news/sonos-readies-new-roam-portable-speaker-3702186 https://www.nairaland.com/6448214/sonos-readies-new-roam-portable https://onlinegdb.com/2vXLiz2Y8 https://paiza.io/projects/CVNq7q8WjLCoInzjm5AFfg?language=php http://paste.jp/4942f137/ https://pastebin.com/tTrzfTM8 https://paste.feed-the-beast.com/view/75828f8e https://pastelink.net/2pq2j https://pasteio.com/xuNd3zsxdsWm https://slexy.org/view/s2vLfyp4Xl https://bpa.st/76RQ https://dumpz.org/cm3w8bzXTNat https://www.pastery.net/nnxcap/ https://warosu.org/jp/page/S1#p33584158_1 While you're out and about, the Sonos Roam will fall back on Bluetooth for streaming music from your smartphone. That WiFi+Bluetooth combo could make the triangular Sonos Roam the perfect travel speaker, with plenty of ways to use it at home when you're not travelling. (We're curious to see if the Sonos Roam leverages the small footprint speaker technology of Ikea's Sonos-designed Symfonisk bookshelf speaker to achieve its compact form factor.) According to a report by tech site The Verge, which also snared what it claims to be pre-release PR photos, the Sonos Roam will land at US$169, parking it just under the US$179 Sonos One SL – which in turn sells for $269 in Australia, hence why we expect the Sonos Roam to retail here at around the $250 mark. However, unlike the Sonos One SL, the Sonos Roam will sport built-in microphones for hands-free voice control using Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. Also on the Roam's rumoured feature list: 10 hours of battery life, a waterproof casing and 500 gram weight, support for Apple AirPlay 2 and an optional battery-charging dock. Sonos has sent out invitations for a launch event for Tuesday March 9 (US time) with the promise that "Something not so big is coming", so by the middle of next week we'll know how this shakes out... This will be prefect for the bathroom, a small space which rarely deserves its own speaker as you're only in there a short while to shower and bathe. I'll definitely get a Sonos Roam to use there and on the back verandah for everything from G&T hour to a BBQ, plus take it overseas as a Bluetooth speaker, bonus!

Long known as a regional airline flying nimble Saab turboprops, Rex has now joined the Boeing 737 jet set with an ambitious plan to challenge Qantas and Virgin Australia for a slice of key capital city markets. That plan took flight on March 1 2021 with the debut of direct Rex Boeing 737 flights between Sydney and Melbourne. The airline has already announced that Adelaide and the Gold Coast will follow, while Brisbane and Canberra are also in the pipeline. https://impressionsmagazine.com/advert/123movies-series-official-attack-on-titan-season-4-episode-13-online-full-episode/ https://impressionsmagazine.com/advert/full-watch-attack-on-titan-season-4-episode-13-online-free-2/ https://impressionsmagazine.com/advert/hd-watch-attack-on-titan-season-4-episode-13-online-free-full-episodes/ https://impressionsmagazine.com/advert/full-watch-attack-on-titan-season-4-episode-13-online/ That network comes courtesy of six Boeing 737s, which ironically used to be leased to Virgin, with the option to add four more by the end of 2021. Rex sees its position as being a value-oriented airline – again, similar to Virgin Australia after its rescue and reboot by US owners Bain Capital – with affordable yet all-inclusive pricing. For business class, this means appealing to the self-employed – people who run their own business and treat the company's money as their own, because basically it is ;– as well as business travellers flying on 'best fare of the day' rules or working a project with tight budget constraints. Also in the mix are the many leisure travellers who'd appreciate moving up to the pointy end of the plane for a little extra comfort. With all that in mind, here's how the Rex Boeing business class experience shakes out. This review is based on flights between Sydney and Melbourne (ZL33 and ZL152). https://alexus-35570.medium.com/review-rex-boeing-737-business-class-e6d5b6b152b3 https://dcm.shivtr.com/forum_threads/3319578 http://www.shadowville.com/board/general-discussions/review-rex-boeing-737-business-class#p468993 http://corsica.forhikers.com/forum/p/41846 https://myanimelist.net/blog.php?eid=845578 https://www.tripoto.com/trip/review-rex-boeing-737-business-class-6043a30cc869a https://www.nairaland.com/6447181/review-rex-boeing-737-business https://onlinegdb.com/SyCL77W7O https://paiza.io/projects/tpj2bkGrmnJWH77YYNzIRg?language=php http://paste.jp/377d3055/ https://paste.feed-the-beast.com/view/a3c5906a https://pastelink.net/2pn4d https://pasteio.com/xNtqYOf6bngI https://slexy.org/view/s2pMYuFEFl https://bpa.st/Y7BQ https://dumpz.org/axpFwDDp2cWe https://www.pastery.net/wsyzbe/ https://warosu.org/jp/page/S1#p33568705_1 How much does Rex Boeing 737 business class cost? What you pay for your ticket is an essential yardstick in determining the overall 'value' of a flight, especially on short routes such as Sydney-Melbourne, where you'll spend around 90 minutes in the air. As with any new entrant into a market, Rex rolled out eye-popping prices: Sydney-Melbourne business class launched at $299, with subsequent discounting across March to $199. Looking at the back half of April 2021, after school holidays have ended, and Rex's Sydney-Melbourne fares are still sitting at $299. These rates are still being matched by Virgin Australia, while Qantas is north of $700. As for the second wave of routes: at the time of writing (early March 2021) Rex's Sydney-Gold Coast and Melbourne-Gold Coast business class fares were pegged at $299 and $349, respectively, with Melbourne-Adelaide business class also at $299. The take-away: Rex's low pricing has to be taken into account in setting your expectations of its overall business class experience. If anything, they represent the most basic and perhaps even the original definition of what an airport lounge should be: a quiet behind-closed-doors space away from the main public terminal and departure gate where selected travellers have no trouble finding a comfortable chair and can enjoy a complimentary cuppa (for coffee, think Nespresso rather than barista) and a light snack, with WiFi also on tap. Those closed doors swing open for not only business class passengers but members of the paid Rex Lounge program, Priority Pass cardholders and, outside of peak weekday hours, casual 'walk-ups' at $33 per visit. Finally, Rex permits business class passengers a flat 32kg of checked luggage and allows at-airport standby to move to an earlier flight at no charge, if your meetings wrap up early – as long as you're prepared to risk going to the airport in the hope of there being an empty seat on an earlier flight.
salamhangat posted a topic in ComunitateFederal Treasurer Josh Frydenberg is considering measures to support firms like Qantas and others that are still struggling with fallout from the coronavirus pandemic, once the government’s JobKeeper wage subsidy expires this month. “We are looking at other measures that we can put in place post-JobKeeper to support a range of industries including the aviation sector,” Frydenberg said in an interview with Sky News. Qantas has received $459 million under the wage support program. It says it has 7,500 people allocated to overseas flights who will still be grounded from the end of March, when the subsidy ends, through to the end of October, when the airline expects to resume international flights once borders reopen. “There’s no doubt that the aviation industry’s been hit and hit hard and Qantas having a 75% reduction in their revenue is testament to that,” Frydenberg said. Covid-19 travel restrictions drove Qantas to an underlying pretax loss of $1.03 billion in the six months ended December from a profit of $771 million a year earlier. Like airlines elsewhere in the world, Qantas’ attempts to fly even limited schedules have been repeatedly stymied by snap border closures within Australia and overseas. Frydenberg said the domestic market is set to improve as a Covid-19 vaccine is rolled out, confidence returns and state borders don’t close as frequently. The treasurer said that, in their most recent conversation, Qantas CEO Alan Joyce told him that in January 1,500 flights into Queensland alone had been canceled. “That was 200,000 passengers that would’ve otherwise gone into Queensland. That would’ve been hundreds of millions of dollars spent on tourism so the fact that we will see I think less border closures, less frequent border closures, and the vaccine rollout will be good news for their business,” Frydenberg said. “Internationally, those borders are remaining closed, effectively, for some time because obviously the world is still grappling with the virus,” Frydenberg added. JobKeeper, introduced in March 2020, paid firms to retain staff during shutdowns through the pandemic. Originally set as a flat payment of $1,500 every two weeks for eligible employees, it’s since been tapered and ends on March 28. Frydenberg said in a speech Wednesday that 1.1 million people would be relying on the payment in the current quarter, some 200,000 fewer than the government estimated in its Mid-Year Economic and Fiscal Outlook released in December. https://teacher.desmos.com/activitybuilder/custom/6042d40f7fda9b3da4c10a31 https://teacher.desmos.com/activitybuilder/custom/6042d8c9ac0fe83ebe03ee77 https://teacher.desmos.com/activitybuilder/custom/6042d9385f9d5241befecc41 https://teacher.desmos.com/activitybuilder/custom/6042da21b793d83eb2c13655 https://teacher.desmos.com/activitybuilder/custom/6042da7ee52b6940a34cae64 https://teacher.desmos.com/activitybuilder/custom/6042d9aa1b58f241bd54de00 https://www.gupshuptoinspire.com/groups/123movies-watch-attack-on-titan-season-4-episode-13-online-full-episodes/ https://www.gupshuptoinspire.com/groups/watch-wandavision-season-1-episode-9-hd-online-free-full-episodes/ https://www.gupshuptoinspire.com/groups/vodlockerr-watch-attack-on-titan-season-4-episode-13-online-full-hd-free-1576323065/ https://www.gupshuptoinspire.com/groups/123movies-series-official-attack-on-titan-season-4-episode-13-online-full-episode/ https://www.gupshuptoinspire.com/groups/official-watch-raya-and-the-last-dragon-2021-online-hd-for-free/ https://www.gupshuptoinspire.com/groups/123movies-watch-raya-and-the-last-dragon-2021-online-full/ https://dcm.shivtr.com/forum_threads/3318645 http://www.shadowville.com/board/general-discussions/government-considers-aid-to-qantas-virgin-once-wage-subsidy-ends#p468904 http://corsica.forhikers.com/forum/p/41730 https://medium.com/@yanette05/government-considers-aid-to-qantas-virgin-once-wage-subsidy-ends-20272d1f6ea4 https://www.tripoto.com/trip/government-considers-aid-to-qantas-virgin-once-wage-subsidy-ends-6042e0c52efdb https://www.nairaland.com/6446332/government-considers-aid-qantas-virgin https://www.onlinegdb.com/SJykfwem_ https://paiza.io/projects/Kw0cEscAP7iLKPCa8LYMVg?language=php http://paste.jp/20b86e8e/ https://paste.feed-the-beast.com/view/99f637fe https://pastelink.net/2pl3q https://pasteio.com/xBGaHCIS7W3O https://slexy.org/view/s20nvwlNO2 https://bpa.st/6DEA https://dumpz.org/atzdYW756TYH https://www.pastery.net/pcfnhr/
